No matter what he does he remains one of the classiest guys ever in the Moto GP paddock.

Never a moaner, a whiner or one to deflect blame publicly in any other individual or organisations direction. The likes of Messr's Stoner, Pedrosa, Lorenzo and others should take note. A top rider and a top human being - best of luck to Nicky.

A never blame anything but him quiet classy rider but maybe that's the problem with Nicky. With all respects to Rossi his views about 11.1 and 11 aren't worth noticed as they're a blind shots still. I hope he will understand all the advantages and downsides of both 11 and 11.1 and differences between usung hard and soft tyre compound in race. The eye is rather turned on Hayden at the end.

It ALWAYS seems to me that he is like he is...never saying anything out of line etc, has all to do about keeping a ride.

He has never been at the top end of riders even with a world title, 2 wins just doesn't cut it on a factory ride.

Ducati have a real dillema on their hands if Hayden can get this GP11.1 to work. He is no stranger to it in GP12 guise.

Can they afford to make Rossi look foolish....should really say anymore foolish.

If I was Nicky I would stick with the GP11, especially at his home race where he wants to do well. Rossi has struggled more on the GP11.1 than on the original GP11.

Why is the expectation never there for Hayden to win a race????? I'm sick to death of all this nice guy crud, how long has he been racing now and always on factory rides, the expectations should be to win....but strangely enough it never is for him.

He's a such a doggone nice guy he's allowed to ride mid pack.....what gives?
